    Hey guys I am pretty sure mr.Abbott only cost his team 1 maybe 2 games last year with errors and he had 2 homeruns in the same year. If you ask me he is just hitting his prime.

    There is no need to post comments like this attacking someone who is making a very valid point, all while you are hiding behind a screen name of BOB. Sure he throws a few balls down the 1st baseline but that has nothing to do with the article or the hockey related comment made.

    Thanks for the encouragement Bob. I'll see you at tryouts in the spring! Try signing your real name instead of hiding behind your keyboard bud!

    Mr. Abbott, you should stick to bobbling balls, committing errors and striking out on the ball field.

      Bob, it's a tough throw from 3B to first, however, young Abbott makes up for it with his speed on the paths!

      Hi Paul, Please take a look at this year's standings (www.nlmmhl.goalline.ca) that will show you that the NLMMHL and Hockey NL have worked hard to ensure parity in the league. Everyone has beaten everyone and the standings three quarters of the way through the regular season are still very much up in the air. Comments like the one you have made here are representative of the kind of attitude that continues to hold back the growth and development of hockey in our province. Tri Pen's situation is quite precarious as they are drawing from a massive geographical area when smaller regions are able to get together for practices and development more often and with easier travel. Mr Budden and his group should be commended for their commitment to making this team work. John stayed involved even after his son had moved on from the team because he was committed to seeing it work. The region has some serious talent as can be seen with their recent successes at the Pee Wee AAA and Bantam AAA levels and there is no reason that they couldn't be competitive at the major midget level as well, in terms of talent. The Major Midget League is the best hockey in our province outside of the NLSHL and more hockey fans need to know this. Kris Abbott - St. John's Privateers
